Hey everyone, i am looking to buy a new lens for my camera and cant decide what to get. I am looking for something suitable for landscape/architecture photography. I am confused as to whether a low apature (say f1.8) or a higher apature (say f4) is more suitable for this sort of photography. I have read somewhere that a higher f number (f16) is more suitable if the light is good? Considering all this, i am now seeing that for low light shots its probably best to get a prime (say...

Hello, I like fisheye lens effects but am reluctant to get a fisheye for a DX series camera, because its desired effect is reduced by the 1.5x factor. Could anyone please post examples of fisheye (8mm?) lenses on the DX cameras, or point to sites that display them? Thank you --RUcrAZ

Hi all, background infoI've been using a Canon 430EXII off camera with a Canon 60D, mostly outdoors as fill light but also in my apartment to learn flash photography: portraits, food ... whatever is fun, I'm a keen learner. I have some gels, diffuser, flash-bender and their work decently for headshots. My S.O has a Nikon SB-700 with her Nikon d5100. My only real experience has been a 2-day on-location shoot with two b1 500 Air, battery packs and light modifiers (softbox, stripbox ...). I...

Hi, I'm thinking about ordering a D7100 and, while I would love me some 70-200 2.8 or at least an 85 1.8G, my current budget restricts me to a kit lens. The 18-105 VR package is about 100 euros more expensive than the 18-55 VR II. My priority for the moment would be family portraits, so blurred backrounds are a must. I also thought about getting a much cheaper camera (D3100, D3200, D5100...) plus better primes, but I've heard the OVF is much smaller and darker. I know most of the technical...

Preface: I'm am a complete camera n00b. I know how to turn it on and take the picture but beyond that I am totally uneducated. I've been wanting to take a class but can't seem to find the time... Question: I want to buy my wife a new lens for her Nikon D5100. When we first got it, it came with a 18-55mm and a 55-300mm but the 55-300mm died on us (won't auto-focus, just clicks like the motor is stuck). The 18-55mm is great for everyday photos but she wants a zoom lens for vacations and events....

Hello, I had never run into this before: A D5100 with a Nikon 16-85mm lens, set on Auto-focus, "Single Point Auto Focus," and aimed at a white background (or a fog bank) was naturally unable to auto-focus. What I was not expecting was that it also would not take a picture - at least it would not do so on either AUTO or P modes. (I switched to Manual Focus, (Infinity,) and it worked OK.) Question: The part about not being able to autofocus I understand; but the part about not taking a picture...

I am a NOOB who is just getting started with photography and DSLRs. To get started I got myself a D5100 as a learning camera which came with a kit lens. My question is two part: Are kit lens absolute garbage and should not even be bothered with or they can be some sort of learning tools for cheap.? What is a recommended lens for me to get started. I mostly plan on shooting desert landscapes (I live in AZ), historical buildings and old artifacts like the ones in ghost towns and around...

Hi, my D40 is in need of servicing and repair, Nikon's estimate is in the region of £170 and they have offered me a choice of upgrades to either the D3100 or D5100. From what I have read the D5100 is the better investment however I am worried about whether or not my Tamron Lens is compatible with this body. I have a Tamron Lens AF18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II LD Aspherical [IF] MACRO ( Model B003NII) -...

Hi,Currently I own a D7000 and my girlfriend has my old D5100. We have only my old two lenses: a nikon 18-55 vr and a nikon 50 1.8We're both starting in photography and though we both love the 50mm I've found we sometime fight over the more versatile 18-55 as the 50mm (a 75 equivalent on our cameras) is somewhat limited in too many situations.I'm looking to buy another lens of similar quality so that we can then have our own "kit" lens (we'll fight over the 50mm I guess).I've found the...
